I attended 15 Ig Nobel prize awards in a row down at Harvard but have missed the last couple, including last night’s – so I’ll have to depend on news coverage to tell you how this annual celebration of scientific goofiness went:
Guardian: A man stung dozens of times by bees, mathematicians who wanted to know whether a man could physically be able to sire 600 sons, and chemists who unboiled an egg were honoured on Thursday night with one of science’s most storied awards, the Ig Nobel prize.
Weirdly, I see no coverage in the Globe, which usually does a big to-do. Shameful!
Here’s the whole list of winners. So far as I can tell, there’s nobody from New Hampshire.
